Arsenal have featured in the two biggest fixtures of the new Premier league campaign and, following defeat to Manchester City last weekend, the Gunners now travel Chelsea in the late Saturday kick off.
It’s a tough start to life for new Arsenal boss Unai Emery and the visitors will be looking to pile on the misery for the former PSG manager. Chelsea are favourites for the win but if you aren’t convinced about those odds, Ladbrokes have a new customer offer that could provide a strong alternative.
Under this promotion, enhanced odds of 28/1* are available and for those to land, we need just one Chelsea goal in normal time.
*18+ Eligible UK+IRE players. Min deposit £5. Paypal & some deposit types excl. Winning bets paid in cash at normal price. Enhanced odds paid in £5 free bets within 24 hours, valid for 4 days, stake not returned, restrictions apply. T&Cs apply
What are the Chances?
The bookmakers certainly seem to rate this offer as they have Chelsea as an odds on option to win the game – a result that would obviously need at least one goal. The Blues can be found at best odds of 5/6 with William Hill while to complete the market, the draw is quoted at a top price of 3/1 with MarathonBet while victory for Arsenal is out at a best of 39/11 with 10Bet.
Meanwhile, the best industry odds on Chelsea to score at least once stand at 2/13 with SportingBet. The numbers all suggest that we should look at this generous deal a little more closely so, if you want to take it further, here are the mechanics.
Get on Board
As a new customer deal, players will need to complete the sign up process in the first instance. To do this, head across from here, input some very basic information and remember to type in the Promo Code BLUES when asked to do so. This whole procedure is very straightforward and should take up no more than around five minutes of your time.
Once complete, you should find yourself at the Ladbrokes’ cashier where you will need to add some funds to cover this bet. Therefore, be sure to note that the minimum deposit is set at £5.00 and that the majority of eWallets, including PayPal, are specifically excluded.
We therefore suggest that you pick out your preferred plastic, add £5.00 or more and you can move immediately on to the next phase.
Place Your Bets
Those funds should now be appearing in the top right hand corner of your home page and you can then stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on this opening bet of Chelsea to score at least one goal when the teams meet at Stamford Bridge on Saturday August 18, 2018.
The game is covered by BT Sport in the UK and it comes with a 17:30 kick off but whether you choose to watch it or not, all we need is Chelsea to score at least once in 90 minutes. If that happens, you will have a winning bet which will be paid in two steps as follows:
If Chelsea score and this promotion delivers, profits will be paid in two parts with an initial return coming back to you as cash, based on Ladbrokes’ market price for the equivalent bet. Expect to see this in your account shortly after the final whistle blows while the balance, up to that price boost of 28/1, arrives as free bet tokens within the following 24 hours.
As an alternative to this scenario, if Chelsea are shut out and the bet fails, Ladbrokes will compensate you with a free bet token worth £5.00 so it’s possible to turn this promotion into a profit no matter what happens.
That completes the round up of significant points but you are free to check all terms and conditions on the Ladbrokes offers page and as a final point to note, any tokens must be used within 4 days or they will expire.
Chelsea won 3-0 away to Huddersfield last weekend with goals from N’Golo Kante, Pedro and new signing Jorginho. The Blues should be bolstered by the return of Eden Hazard this weekend and while there are questions over who should be the first choice striker, this is already looking to be a potent unit.
Arsenal’s defence should provide a tougher test on Saturday and this isn’t a guaranteed offer but it’s certainly a strong one with excellent enhanced odds for new Ladbrokes customers.
